Anyone for third helpings of cake?!
Time for a NEW Stamp Of The Week (SOTW) and this week I am dusting off… Celebrate With Cake
As a CAS girl at heart and that relates to most of my life (apart from the beans – LOL!) in card making and paper crafts I rarely reach for the patterned papers. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE pattern, colour and pretty papers. I just find them daunting to use without over cluttering my card and keep my card CAS.
Anyway, I am ‘trying’ to overcome my fear of using patterned papers and so decided to give it ago on tonights card…
I have opted for a simple pattern, however it still spoke summer to me with the fresh yellow and white. It reminded me of a Redcar Lemon Top ice cream hence my lemon frosting on my cupcake!
The cupcake case is stamped in Hero Arts Mint to Green Ombré ink and the yellow frosting is VersaMagic Mango Madness, with a light dusting of Wink Of Stella. Even though the card seems to have a lot going on, I have tried to keep the focal point simple with limited embellishments.
I’m pretty pleased with how my card turned out, but I still need a little more practice and confidence using patterned papers I think!
Ok, that’s all from me tonight, I still have a TON of work to do and a class on Saturday to prepare for. I think I am probably one of the only people in the UK not watching some kind of sport on the TV tonight!
Anyway, I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration featuring this set and don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week.
